Tip – Portland kicks off their three-game road trip on Tuesday, as they travel to Los Angeles as 2.5-point favorites over the Clippers. Portland has been a shoo-in amongst betters when playing on the road in recent weeks. The Trail Blazers have gone 6-1 ATS in their last seven road games, and 5-0 when facing teams with winning records. To further cement their road warrior status, the Blazers are undefeated ATS in their last four games in Los Angeles.

Tip – Brooklyn, currently riding a three-game win streak, still has an uphill battle to lock themself into a playoff spot. Wednesday kicks off what will be a 16-day, seven-game road trip for the Nets, but in terms of betting sites odds, playing away from home may work in Brooklyn’s favor. The Nets are six games over .500 ATS in road games this season. Oklahoma City also happens to be one of the NBA’s worst teams amongst betting sites, owning a horrific 1-9 record ATS in their last ten games.

Tip – Blake Griffin may be the most unheralded MVP candidate in the past decade, while Andre Drummond is coming off a dominating week of play cumulating in POTW honors. Detroit has been outstanding over their last ten games, going 8-2 SU and 7-3 ATS. Their 8th ranked defense will cause fits for a struggling Miami offense, whose scoring offense ranks just 25th in the NBA. Detroit will likely push the Heat’s ATS record to seven games below .500 in AmericanAirlines Arena this season, while simultaneously knocking them out of the 8th seed in the East.

Tip – Houston is just eight games removed from capturing a SU/ATS win against the Warriors in Golden State. This time around, Golden State travels to Houston, where the Rockets are 3.5-games over .500 ATS this season. Golden State may not find their usual success from behind the arc come Wednesday night. The Rockets have guarded the 3-point line with tremendous success this season, ranking 5th in the NBA in defensive 3Pt%. Golden State’s struggles in Oracle have been well publicised this season, but in terms of betting, it doesn’t really matter where the game takes place. The Warriors are just 2-8 ATS in their last ten games.

Tip – If there was any game for the Warriors to get back to their dominant ways, this would be the one. As we touched on above, the Thunder are in the midst of a terrible slump. OKC is just 3-7 SU in their last ten games, while covering the point spread in just one of those games. Golden State has been a better bet all season when playing on the road, and has won 13 of the past 17 head-to-head matchups with OKC. Don’t let the star power amongst these two teams waver you from the obvious betting trends pointing towards the score total hitting the UNDER on Saturday night. Golden State, owners of the NBA’s top scoring offense, has not hit the OVER in five consecutive games, while the Thunder have gone UNDER in six of their last eight contests.

Tip – Philly travels to Milwaukee to face off with a Bucks team that has won four straight at home. Betting sites will likely peg Milwaukee as the favorites for Sunday’s contest, a position that they thrive in. Milwaukee is 7-2 in their last nine games when favored to win. Contrastingly, the ‘6ers have gone just 1-3 ATS in their last four road games, while also struggling to put the basketball in the basket. Philadelphia has hit the UNDER in five consecutive games.
